Lauderhill Officials to Celebrate the Opening of the New Fire Station - #110 on Oct. 29, 2015
The addition of Fire Station #110 in 2006 followed the City of Lauderhill’s annexation of the St. George, West Ken Lark and Broward Estates Communities. The City’s Fire Department has been operating out of a temporary trailer facility located at 3120 NW 12 Place since that time.
On Thursday, October 29, 2015 at 10 am, the City’s Officials along with the Fire Department Staff and the residents of the City of Lauderhill will celebrate with a Ribbon Cutting for a new state of the art Fire Station to be located at the same address as the long standing temporary facility.
The new 15,000 square foot state of the art facility was Designed and Built by West Construction, Inc and West Architecture + Design, LLC to meet the LEED Silver standards. These standards conform to the City’s ordinance requiring all newly constructed City buildings to be environmentally friendly.
Fire Station #110 includes three fire truck bays, living quarters for fire rescue staff, a kitchen, a dayroom, an exercise room, separate restroom/shower facilities for both male and females, offices, storage rooms, a stand-by emergency generator, a police sub-station, and a medical triage room on the first floor.
The second floor includes a multi-purpose room and serves as the City’s back-up Emergency Operations Center - as Fire Station #57 serves as the primary.
“The opening of Fire Station #110 is a great accomplishment for the City and a real source of pride for our residents in the southeast corridor of Lauderhill. The building is the flagship for our very honorable fire department but it is also a beautiful addition for our community,” explains Mayor Richard J. Kaplan.
Although the City’s Official Ribbon Cutting will commence at 10 am, there will be an Official Cornerstone Laying Ceremony by the Masonic Grand Lodge of Florida at 9:00 am. The Honorable Stephen P. Boring, Grand Master of Masons of the Most Worshipful Grand Lodge will preside over the proceedings. Both the 9 am Masonic Cornerstone Laying Ceremony and the 10 am Official City Ribbon Cutting Ceremony are free and open to the public.
